Thermotoga neapolitana DSM 4359

Names Thermotoga neapolitana DSM 4359
Accession numbers NC_011978
Background Thermotoga neapolitana (strain ATCC 49049 / DSM 4359 / NS-E) is a hyperthermophilic bacterium isolated from black smoker in the bay near Naples, Italy. This organism, like other Thermotoga, produces a vast quantity of hydrogen in batch culture. It is being considered for use in projects to utilize waste carboydrates for the production of hydrogen gas for industrial purposes. A number of thermostable enzymes such as alkaline phosphatase are also produced by this bacterium and may be of use for industrial purposes. (adapted from : (HAMAP: THENN)
